Stash busting Sunday

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a good weekend. I actually had a ME day yesterday. I hardly ever have those and when I do, I’m too exhausted to do anything. But yesterday, I completed 3 layouts and even a card!

I chose to dig deep into my stash and found a partial Dog Collection from American Crafts dated 2012. I had a few full sheets and scraps and this is what I came up with!

Hanging with my Peeps: ACOT Music Challenge. Products used are Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts pattern paper and Thickers; Reminisce, Paper House Productions stickers; CTMH glitter tape; My Little Shoebox mini alphas and Momenta veneer paw prints.

The music challeng was based on an album cover and you pull inspiration from it however you wish.

The road to my Heart is paved with Pawprints: ACOT Double Page Challenge. Products used are Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts pattern paper; Reminisce stickers and CTMH glitter tape.

Double Page Challenge offered the following sketch:

Squirrely Watching: Scraplift the January Guest Designer and Manufacturer Challenge with a Twist. Products used were American Craft papers; 7 Paper, MAMBI, Reminisce stickers; Amy Tangerine Thickers; Freckled Fawn chipboard and cork arrow; Eyelet Outlet brad; Tattered Angels Mist; Bazzill cardstock; Momenta veneer paw prints and Scrapberrys flair.

The layout I scraplifted was this one:

The Manufacturer Challenge was to use manufacturs that start with an A (American Crafts, Amy Tangerine) and the twist is to use something else that starts with an A. It can be an embellishment, a technique, etc. Mine are the “arrows”.

My last project from the weekend was a card for ACOT’s Card Challenge. Products used on this one were American Craft papers; Anna Griffin sentiment; ACOT sticker; and Fancy Pants, Queen & Co, and Eyelet Outlet enamel dots.

The card challenge offered two options, with the BONUS being doing both. Option was to include an animal (I used a dog sticker). The second option was to use the following sketch:

A couple of layouts using PhotoPlay “Fetch” collection

Good afternoon everyone! We’re staying home this weekend, so I decided to get some scrapping done.

I used PhotoPlay “Fetch” collection for both of these. The first one is based on the A Cherry on Top’s Becky Fleck Sketch #156:

Pics are of sweet Ruby Mae all smiles in the yard. The doily and twine are from Doodlebug.

The sketch I used was:

The second layout is for A Cherry On Top’s “Make the Cut” challenge and “3 in a Row” challenge. The Make the Cut Challenge offered the following sizes to cut our pattern papers:

4 1/2 x 9
3 1/4 x 10
3 x 9 1/4

And this is what I came up with:

Sweet Jeffrey snoozing the day away. Most of it is PhotoPlay with the exception of the doily (Doodlebug); sleeping dog sticker (Sticko); “LOVE” sticker (Anna Griffin) and “Best Friend” sticker (Reminisce)

The 3 in a Row Challenge is set up like a Tic-Tac-Toe board. This month our choices are:

washi tape              5 or more pattern papers                 color blue

rings/circles          inking                                                    die cuts

2 or more photos        buttons- 2 or more                             date

I went diagnol — 2 or more photos; inking and the color blue.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Whatcha doin’?

Good afternoon everyone! I started this layout on Sunday and worked on it for about 10-15 minutes each day. I was kind of picky as to where the die cuts would go, but at the end, I finally loved the placement.

This photo is a “nose” shot of Miss Penny, circa 2014. She was just SO NOSEY that day and I snapped the pic just perfectly!

I used a variety of washi tapes – Doodlebug, Love My Tapes and Queen & Co. The die cuts are dies from Momenta and the cardstock is from my scraps binder. The cute doggie sticker is from Sticko, and the mist is by Tattered Angels. Everything else used is from my stash.

I submitted this layout to the Use Your Stash Challenge at A Cherry On Top. The challenge was to use at least 5 scraps of paper and 2 different dies. I used hearts, the “LOVE” die and a paw print.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Happy Dog

Hello everyone! I started the new year scrapping. I only did one layout, but its better than nothing.

These photos are of Bear from 2014. She was really wanting attention from my husband and I love how she grabbed his hand.

Its based on the Becky Fleck Sketch #155 that A Cherry On Top was hosting. I ran out of time, so I submitted it for the January Rewind Challenge.

Here’s the sketch:

The cut file was found Cricut Design. I searched for “paw”.

The papers/stickers are PhotoPlay and the enamel shapes are by Fancy Pants.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Cake Time!

Good afternoon everyone! I have a layout to share with you. Its of my nephew digging into his cake on his first birthday.

I used papers from CTMH, veneer cake embellishments from KaiserCraft, alphas are Bo Bonny, the yellow washi tape is from Bella Blvd and stickers are by Reminsce .

I submitted the layout to two challenges over at A Cherry On Top. November What’s on TV? Challenge was to show a photo with food and November Sketch with a Twist Challenge was to use the sketch provided (please see below). The “twist” was to use at least two brackets. Mine is around the title.

TFL! 🙂

Scrappy Weekend Layouts

Hello everyone. Last weekend I got together with my scrappy girls for our quarterly crop at my house. I FINALLY finished the Gender Reveal for my 1st nephew and started the Baby Shower for him.

It’s a Boy! I used Chickaniddy Crafts and its based on the October Guest Designer Challenge #2 – Stretch the Sketch.

Baby Shower for Draven: I used Simples Stories alphas, enamel arrows by Freckled Fawn and the stickers/papers are PhotoPlay

Playing Games: I used papers/stickers from PhotoPlay and Cloud 9 Design for the alphas. Its for the ACOT Graphic Design Challenge. The hostess gave us several pizza ads to choose from and we can lift one of them.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Gender Reveal

Good afternoon everyone! I had some time this past weekend to scrap a little and I got a two page layout completed, featuring pics from the Gender Reveal Party from LAST year!

I struggled at first, trying to find the PERFECT papers since I wanted to use a collection that had both pink and blue papers. It was a toss up between PhotoPlay and Chickaniddy Crafts. And Chickaniddy Crafts won! I loved the colors and the different patterns.

Other products used were:

white cardstock: Bazzill
papers, alphas: Chickaniddy Crafts “Yippee” collection
flowers: Hobby Lobby
birds: Paper House Productions
bubble stickers: Heidi Swapp
enamel dots/hearts: Freckled Fawn
washi tapes: Queen & Co (yellow) and AC (pink)

I submitted this layout to ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge.


doily                     bling           Banner

flowers                 Bazzill        at least 3 patterned papers

butterfly              teal             leaves

I chose the middle row: Flowers, Bazzill (white cardstock for background) and at least 3 pattern papers (I have five)

TFL! 🙂

Merry & Bright

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I did any scrapping and a couple of weekends ago, I actually did a layout. Its for ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge and I combined with the Sketch with a Twist Challenge. The Graphic Design challeng gave us a choice of some logos and we must only use those colors. The hostess also gave us a bonus where you can use any aspect of the logo itself besides the colors. The logo I chose was “Hello Kitty” and I chose to scrap about my kitty, Jackson, for the bonus.

Here is my layout:

As you can see, I used only black, white and red. Jackson loves laying under the Christmas Tree, so he got his stocking full of treats under there. He looks very pleased with “Santa Paws”. Christmas 2018

My layout is based on the following sketch, along with the “twist” (must use at least two tags. I used three):

My list of products is as follows:

background paper: Reminisce
“meow” washi tape: Doodlebug
cat die cut, “here kitty kitty” sticker, glittery red/white striped paper: The Paper Studio
chipboard shapes: Basic Grey
red washi tape with phrases: Recollections
“Merry & Bright” tag: Mambi
stocking: Paper House Productions
red/white tag: Echo Park
b/w tag: Canvas Corp

TFL! 🙂
